Coming up on this Solstice, Festivus, Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa show, talk of Dungeness crab closures in Southeast gets no support from the advisory committee in Petersburg, we find out how the science of ergonomics can keep you healthier and save you money, and as fish skin tanning gears up to commercial levels overseas, it's still done by hand in Alaska. We help from KFSK's Angela Denning in Petersburg, KBBI's Quinton Chandler in Homer, who we welcome this week to the AFR extended family of fishy journalists, and KSK's Anne Hillman in Anchorage.

    Kodiak Middle School 8th graders were treated with a day filled with hands-on ocean science experiences all day Friday in Switgard Dusterloh’s Ocean Science field day. Students rotated among six field stations, one of them was a deep sea science station, held inside the University of Alaska’s premier facility at the Kodiak Seafood and Marine Science Center. Once inside, 8th graders viewed video from an actual sub dive in Alaska, learned about Aleutian Trench oceanography, depths of the world’s oceans and tools to conduct research in the abyss.
    A team of instructors led the submarine science station, including teachers Mary Linscheid,and Rachel Nummer, UAF SeaGrant Professor Kate Wynne and Submarine Pilot Michelle Ridgway, head of the Alaska Deep Ocean Science Institute.
    The Submarine Science station was made possible by Captain Richard Waddell of Kodiak, who donated the K-350 submarine to the Alaska Chapter of The Explorers Club, and managed by the Alaska Deep Ocean Science Institute. Quinton Fong, Kay Bodi and staff at KSMSC customized the facility space to enhance the students’ subsea learning experience.

    The Kodiak High School basketball teams had mixed results over the weekend at the T-Bird Classic at East Anchorage High School. The girls won two of three games in the round-robin tournament, losing only to eventual champion East, while the boys went winless.
    In Saturday's action, the Juneau Crimson Bears downed the Kodiak boys 52-38. Kodiak led by two at the half, but Juneau responded with some sharpshooting from three-point range to pull away in the second half. Jemuel Mangalus and Max Mutch were named All-Tournament.
    The Barrow Whalers, a 3-A school, led by a 6-7 freshman, went undefeated and won the tournament.
    The Kodiak girls fell to the host team 54-45 in a turn-over-ridden game. Ila Hughes, Kristhel Fangonilo and Stephanie Price were named to the All-Tournament Team.

    The crew of the fishing vessel Tuxedni were honored as Carnegie Heroes today for the rescue of fishermen from the FV Heritage, which became disabled and sank in high seas crossing Alitak Bay in January 2012. That was a busy day for rescuers, as another fishing vessel went aground on the Katmai coast (read more here: http://www.kmxt.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3515&Itemid=2)

The 6-foot-7 freshman 14-year-old from Barrow led the Barrow Whalers with 24 points nine rebounds, two blocks, three assists and three steals in downing the Bears 64-26. And that was just in 20 minutes of play. Max Much had eight points and seven rebounds for Kodiak.
   The Lady Bears were led by Ila Hughes who recorded 17 points, four assists and three steals in downing the Service Cougars 59-29. Stephanie Price added another 10 points while both Richelle Walker and Charmaine Fabricante each hauled in 10 rebounds.
   The Kodiak girls are hitting the hardwood again at 1 this afternoon against Eagle River, while the boys are playing in the nightcap against the host Thunderbirds at 7 p.m. You can hear the games on KVOK, our commercial radio friends.
